Looking for a replacement wheelchair and would like suggestions for an all terrain one that would have no problem on sand.... think they generally have balloon type wheels ?
Anyone got one they would recommend ?

when over in France August this year visited the F.F.L. homes and as we only had mams stroller with us we borrowed a wheelchair from the F.F.L. ... it has inflatable tyres and may well have been of use to someone like yourself have never seen one like it before ....

David - could certainly have done with one of those when I used to take Mum to the park (gravel paths !) or out in the snow.

I googled "all terrain wheelchairs" and got a lot of hits (some are VERY expensive :shock: ). It might be worthwhile contacting some of the companies to see if they would let you have one on trial first.

Thanks Susie
I do need to do some research and maybe even buy another Lotto ticket :)
It is just very difficult travelling on rough ground which in turn limits certain trips out,even on short excursions
